Children’s SCN – Young Londoners speak out about the NHS

On Saturday 29th November the Children and Young People’s (CYP) Strategic Clinical Network held an event to find out what young people think as users of health services. The event was run in conjunction with the Association of Young People’s Health, a charity which advocates for young people on health issues. A diverse group of young people shared their views with us around how they currently use services and what they would like to see in future. This included comments such as:

“Help us understand where to go to get help and please make it simple”


“Allow me to access services by email – don’t let me waste GP and hospitals’ time”

The young people were very enthusiastic about being involved and requested further contact and engagement with the CYP SCN which is planned for 2015.
